The seasoned sky-jockeys at Cardinal Wings Aviation arm students with the knowledge and skills needed to navigate the wild blue yonder. Mini ground school distills a deluge of aeronautic knowledge into three-hour training session, imparting basic aerodynamics, introductory flight info, and a tour of the Cessna 172M and the helium water wings that keep it afloat. Side-by-side with one of the aviation school’s instructors, students take to the skies for 30 minutes of guided flight and can bring along a guest passenger for an additional $30. Planes surf through the troposphere as students get to try their hands at controlling the aircraft while gleaning hours for their logbooks and autographs of famous clouds in the margins of their learning materials. Mini ground school is held on the first Saturday of each month and must be attended before embarking on the Discovery Training flight.
